#3 Seed Humphrey St. Francis too much for the Timberwolves.

Humphrey St. Francis were on a mission of revenge on the State Tournament court Thursday afternoon. They have finished as runner ups in the State D-1 bracket the last two years. They were State Champions last in 2006. Exeter-Milligan Timberwolves held on for the first two periods but were outscored the last two periods, only scoring two points in the final period.

Exeter-Milligan high scorers were seniors Travis Yound with 11 points and Dillan White contributed 12 points for the team. The final score for the game was 57-32, ending the Timberwolves state play. The team had a 18 -7 record on the year.

Named to the boys All Conference Team were Travis Yound - first team, Dillan White and Mitch Horne - honorable mention. All Star team members were Travis Yound and Dillan White with Mitch Horne chosen as an alternate. Girls All Conference Team members were Heather Pribyl on the first team with Claire White given an honorable mention.

A little trivia, for you Exeter history buffs. Senior Dillan White's parents, Brad and Darcy White both played on State Championship teams. Brad, for McCool Junction in 1985 and Darcy for Exeter in 1986. Also, Jim Horne, father of Mitchell Horne, another senior, scored 36 points for Exeter back in 1980 at the District c-9 semi-final. Thanks to Bonnie Cudaback for sharing this information.
